Artfully made with fashionably quirky visuals and smooth animations, Oscura offers classic platform gameplay with reliable touch screen controls. The soundtrack wasn't bad either. It is too short and often frustratingly hard. After unlocking just a few stages we get a hopeful notice suggesting the remaining stages will be released soon (+1 star if that happens). Aside, I find it awkwardly formatted as a casual game, awarding up to 3 stars per stage according to your performance and doing away with (what could have been) an immersive, narratively engaging experience. Essentially it's like a fairy tale dumped on a TV show (+1 star for inviting us into this mystery world instead of showcasing it).
